Sawmill BOMA., French Heritage monument to Reims

In the absence of documentary sources, the appearance of this mill, part of which is high in brick and timber panelling, suggests a dating from the 19th century. The metal frame of the manufacturing facility, operated by BOMA in 1928, certainly indicates a later repair. Termination of the activity date probably 30 years.
